Subject: Row Jimmy - Rare!
If you could only take 10 to the desert island, you could do far worse than this show.
Subject: Great Aud - Missing China Cat though
Subject: Looks like rain
Looks Like Rain is amazing. Playin in the band is groovy and trippy as it gets. Here comes sunshine is darn well near perfect. Jam into other one blazes. Wharf far is beautiful like Looks like rain.
If this sound was just slightly less tinny sounding at times I'd give this a 5. Still a brilliant show and I thank Donn Amick for capturing this masterpiece of a concert.
Subject: I was there
Subject: make room in your most hallowed pantheon
The Bird Song is one of the best ever, not as famous or frenetic as Veneta, but truly rapturous in its own right... sublime, hypnotic, and awesome.
Donn Amick, if you are out there, thank you for this cherished gem.
Subject: Box of Rain!

Subject: Aud? maybe not, but DAMN!
It is one of the cream of the crop downloads I have favored for the last few years...bar none!
Yes, there is a hint of a sbd component to it, but who cares!
The sound and the playing merge together on this one more than normal. It, they, are liquid in so many of the cuts.
Yes, there are a few audio blemishes (cut outs, oh gee, it's mono for the first 30 seconds of Here Comes Sunshine then, WHOA!, back into stereo space (it suffers because of this???)
As said before me, the set list, combined with an incredibly jazzy, loose, simple, yet mesmerizing sound makes this a keeper from all the years!
Download the SHN version and know you have the best!

Subject: COMPLETELY FACE-MELTING
Subject: UNBELIEVABLE SHOW!!
I'm sure most of remember where we were & what we were doing when we heard our 1st show from the Honey Year of '73. I was driving w/friends smoking some GREAT hash when someone pulled out the Stanford show from 2/9 & started it just before Black Throated Wind. I believe Beer Barrel Polka was next---and I've not been the same since. I also got a copy of Cornell the same night---it was almost too much to handle. Anyway, this show made it seem as if I'd lost my cherry to the GD all over again. I think I may have found my favorite Birdsong, and PITB had certain quality that I'd not heard before.
That this copy can be downloaded still is great. You're missing one of, if not THE greatest shows of this INCREDIBLE year in the GD's history. But don't take mine, or anyone else's word as gospel---listen to it yourself...LISTEN...
WWWEEE LLLOOOVVVEEE YYYOOOUUU!!!
Subject: Top 3 Birdsong and more
Classic '73 show, and one of the top 3 Birdsong's you'll ever hear. A must for all Jerry/Birdsong freaks.
Subject: great recording, no joke
by the way, i'm not writing this because i suddenly converted to audience recordings after archive pulled the boards. i've always been an aud fan, and this quality is better than an ouade tape from the '80s. my guess is that this is due to the fact that the wall of sound produced such full and rich tones.
if the dead were ever to release a complete audience recording, imho, this would be it. phat jams, prime '73 form, killer audience. in a sense, this is richer than the board because we get the warmth of the room.
Subject: There Are 5 Star Shows...
Subject: Great show good aud for 73'
Subject: What happened?
Subject: I DONT KNOW IF I DID...
Subject: superb audience recording
Subject: Great Solstice Show
Jerry's solo & Phil and Keith's reemergence are divinely futuristic, one of the places in the Dead world that is pure and timeless, it clearly evokes 1977 and 1969 right smack dab in the middle of the 7. We used to call this one
Truckin up to BC Jam...
check out Keith's Chick Corea-esque circles around 5 minutes in to the jam, and Phil & Jerry's spirited, timely re-entries... this one ROLLS up to BC on golden chariot clouds.
Jerry taps into some really inspired playing throughout the whole show. Hey Archive, more stars please!
The Dead are lots of 6 to 7, I give this one a 6.
BTW, I used to have a SBD tape of this show and I prefer this great audience recording. If you like 6-10-73, check out how the boys followed it up, they're takin it to the next level here.
